A 24-Year-Old Scammed Apple 42 Times In 16 Different States

Pope Re:$7142.85 (409 comments)

Spoken like a person who never owned a Macbook. I am a Linux guy, and I am by no stretch of the imagination an Apple fan, but misinformed hatred is just a form of ignorance.

The Pentagon's $399 Billion Plane To Nowhere

Pope Re:Stop throwing good money after bad. (364 comments)

They had the Super Hornet. It was available. It was perfect for the Navy and Marines, and most foreign use such as Canada. The F35 sales pitch was bullshit, and they fell for it.

The Pentagon's $399 Billion Plane To Nowhere

Pope Re:Stop throwing good money after bad. (364 comments)

The F-35 is silly. The Navy and Marines need the Super Hornet, not a 35-style does nothing well plane. Canada bought into the 35 sales pitch, and our CF18s are dying in the field with nothing to replace them. Again, the 18E/F wouldn't been perfect and available NOW.

Cable Companies Duped Community Groups Into Fighting Net Neutrality

Pope Re:ooh ive played this game before. (170 comments)

I also think smoking is a right, in the more general case that I believe people should be permitted to mutilate their bodies however they wish, at whatever personal expense they wish.

You do NOT have a "right" to smoke.
You have the right to CHOOSE to engage in risky behaviour.
Do not conflate the two, as they are not the same thing.

Cable Companies Duped Community Groups Into Fighting Net Neutrality

Pope Re: while we're bitching about cable companies.. (170 comments)

The "500 channel universe" of niche channels didn't pan out. The History Channel is now about pawn shops. There's simply not enough actual original content to supply the number of channels out there by genre, and certainly not enough money to start making those shows.
